Got my new nocasters in yesterday and slapped them in my tele. Im not sure if its the tele or what but they are waaaaay brighter than the OV's I had in my american special tele. the bridge was advertised and praised as being warmer. nope. I like the neck pickup alot but the bridge is iceyyyyyyyyy and thin. There's a certain unpleasant "zing" to them as well. I ordered a GFS hotter 52 alnico 5 bridge. They said that it helps with icey teles. We will see.
